Now isn’t this a nice gesture.

While Joel Emiid was recovering from his foot surgery that will knock him out of being the #1 pick in the NBA Draft this week, fellow draft class prospect Jabari Parker brought him Gatorade and Oreos. Parker put this caption on Instagram with the photo:

“Had to check up on my boy @joelembiid and give him his meds,” the former Duke star wrote on Instagram. “He’s in very good spirits. s/o to @arsnyder1 for taking the photo. #GodspeedJOJO.”

That was awfully nice of Parker who actually stands to gain the most from Embiid’s injury. I’m not saying thats why he is smiling so big and bringing Joel gifts, but I’m sure the thought has crossed his mind once or twice.

Get well soon Joel, no one wants a promising career cut short by injury.
